The TPAC team is partnering with colleagues at Arizona State University and Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, to study equity, equality, and development issues, as part of the Center for Nanotechnology and Society at Arizona State University. We have traveled to South Africa for field work on the South African Nanotechnology Initiative (SANI) and are now studying the research agenda on water, energy, and agrifood applications of nanotechnology in the United States. Our analyses have included an examination of whether applications in these areas met the early expectations for nanotechnology to contribute to the Millennium Development Goals.
